Windows xp battery meter not updating
Apple has removed the "time remaining" battery life indicator with the new mac OS Sierra update following complaints from several users of new Mac Book Pro models.
I have gone through several batteries with my HP 6700t.If put on charge while the indicator is working, and allowed to become fully charged, then the indicator gets stuck again.Windows XP running in Virtualbox does show the correct battery level regardless of the charge history.

I am going to try an install of another distro in a last attempt to recover my batteries full capacity.Currently running Ubuntu 11.04On 12.04 it is still faulty.Hence, it is a problem with the operating system, not with the Hardware.
This issue is not new, years ago I also created the bug 577557 for the Ubuntu 10.04 but it was not solved.
I hope this time I arrive in time to be able to solve the problem.

In windows 7 the battery works fine even when I keep it unplugged from the charger, but in Natty if I keep it unplugged for more than 15 seconds it shuts down...
Windows reports 100%, Ubuntu reports 0% the second it's off the charger despite saying "battery is charged."Alright, my trick doesn't seem to fare too well after an hour or two; the battery indicator just kind of stops at 38%.
It happens always, till the laptop shuts down because there is no battery left.
